Shoes Make the Dress
What say ye about fashion? It dribbles into our lives daily, via the television, inter-net and printed media. Women will endure pain and constraint to look high fashioned. For myself, life has become all about comfort, no longer the high heels, suits with starched shirts or even the dress. But there were days where my first task for the day was centered around my closet. I was obsessed with shoes, I believed that shoes could make or break the outfit and so my offering today is about shoes.
This is a standard A-2 card. Background paper in polka dots, I then took an old pattern instruction sheet and scanned in a overview portion and printed it out, then took a portion of the pattern itself and adhered it to the printed out portion, distressed with Tim Holtz dies, rescanned and cut to use as my secondary background. The shoes were cut from "Wall Decor and More". I used gold foil for the hells and did 2 pieces of hammered wire for the sides. All coloring was done with Copic markers.
Have a wonderful Fashion week and thanks so much for visiting, hugs
Just a little postscript: If my posts seem muddled, if I am short, if my words are misspelled, please forgive and love me anyway, I quit smoking today and the next week will be a bear, but I am going to keep as busy as possible, I am going to tackle every disorganized area and thing in my way as I trudge my way to the other side of the line, the no-smoking line, it is time. So say a prayer for me and we will see if I can do this, I am pretty strong willed when I am committed, in the last 3mos, I have given up wine, beer and coffee lattes in preparation for this time, so I would say I am committed. I have had many false starts in this desire to quit, but they say you are not a failure unless you quit trying. Carry on, hugs
